EMRC is the only institution of its kind to be established by the University Grants Commission in the entire State of Karnataka. It was renamed as Educational Multimedia Research Centre (EMRC) IN 2004. EMRC produces educational video for 24 Hour Higher Educational Channel (GD-Vyas) and Doordarshan’s National Network DD-1.
